The yarn from Tiennie arrived today and it’s wonderful! The picture doesn’t quite do justice to the fullness of the color. Now I just have to decide which project would best suit it; tough decision (no, not really).
In anticipation of the arrival of the yarn and feeling celebratory, I had to make a miniature batch of chocolate chip cookies last night.
That’s about a dozen, but I probably ate 2 cookies-worth before they were baked. Although I could make a full batch of dough and freeze it ahead of time, I like to make it fresh these days using the recipe in the book, Small-Batch Baking by Debby Maugans Nakos. I used to make these every Friday night while we watched Battlestar Gallactica, that is, until they changed the night of broadcast to Sunday nights (odd choice) and ended for the season. This show is really good, and I’m not a huge science fiction fan, I’m just married to one. It is really the only current-running TV show we watch, although we do consider Ugly Betty rather entertaining and a nice change from all the usual Hollywood junk. Unfortunately, now that BG is done for the season and doesn’t air again until 2008 (that hurts), we’re on BG withdrawal, and now chocolate chip cookie withdrawal, too. We could both stand to loose a few calories, anyway.
